Takes about an hour to walk through the Hapao rice terraces to the hot water pool. In June, the terraces were bright green and yellow, and a treat to the eyes! So many photograph-worthy points throughout the trek. You pass by a few houses, some local farmers/children and barely any tourists. The hot water pool and cold stream at the... More

Loved it on the first day when we arrived in Banaue to have a easy walk around the lush green rice terraces. The trip from banaue takes some time but its worth it to see this man made marvel.

Very far from Banaue (15m could be more than one hour), but very nice, expecially the net terraces. Personally I prefer the Batad and Banaue rice terraces, but also worth a visit.

travel time is over an hour. the roads are being widened so there were road blocks. but scenic and made it really worth the trip. You marvel at the engineering genius of the natives who built the rice terraces and appreciate their families in continuing this legacy through the younger generations.

Although the terms "Banaue" (the city) and "rice terraces" are often used interchangeably, there are several locations in the Banaue region that have impressive rice terraces. We hired a guide with jeep and driver to take us to the Hapao rice terraces, because these terraces were the closest to our accommodations at Native Village Inn, whose staff arranged our tour....

This is an easy hike through the wonderfull ricefields of Hapao. At the end of the trail there is a hotspring and a lovely cold river where you can have a dip. Take some sandwiches and cold drinks with you, there is no restaurant.
